I can quit eating chocolate if I want to, but I am not a quitter!
I saw that somewhere and liked it and had to share. So, I have several things on my mind.
Pork loin was on sale last week for 1.49/lb. Is that a good price? It was somewhere near six pounds, so the pork loin was just under $10. The last time I had a pork loin, I cooked it in the oven. This one went into my large gifted crock pot and cooked for 20 hours. It is possibly the most tender piece of meat I have ever had.
I just had pulled pork on a free bun with marked down BBQ sauce. But, I had no cole slaw to put on top--boo hoo. Unfortunately, I could not afford a bag of the tricolor cole slaw mix. Tomorrow, I can afford it as my ss check will come tomorrow.
Exbf will come on Thursday, so we will have pork loin, slaw, and field peas and still have leftovers...maybe for Easter, too? I predict the pork loin will last for 10 meals; the coleslaw for 5, and the field peas for 4 meals. Exbf will eat one meal here, and I will send home another meal with him. I will put the meal in a divided, covered Tupperware plate so he can take it to work for his meal..
(No, I cannot grate cabbage because of my injured hands.)
Dressing and BBQ sauce
In the grocery store I have seen Kraft Ranch Dressing, 24 ounces and no hfcs Kraft BBQ sauce, 18 ounces, packaged together, shrink-wrapped and sold for only a bit less than they would be separately on the shelf. The other day, I found the packaged duo for $1.99. The dressing in this size was something like $3.48, so I am ahead on this already. I think the BBQ sauce was $1.49. At any rate it was a bargain. I love both but rarely buy either.
This was the BBQ sauce I put on my sandwich. I could put it in the meat, but I won't.
Pork loin is something I recently discovered. Don't ask me why.
How much per pound is pork loin regularly priced? What is a good price when it is on special? This was not going out of date! Did they mark down the dressing bbq sauce duo at your store? t any rate, I think $1.99 for both is a steal.
